ONE Chamber Choir

ONE is a young adult choir under the baton of Ms Lim Ai Hooi. Established in June 2009, ONE currently consists of 45 singers, all of whom are choral enthusiasts with rich choral performing experience.

In June 2012, ONE was invited as a guest choir for the 1st Festival Coros de Verão held in Lisbon, Portugal. Apart from performing Mozart’s “Requiem” for the opening concert, ONE also performed at various landmarks in Lisbon, notably the UNESCO World Heritage site, the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos. In 2013, ONE took part in the Andrea O. Veneracion International Choral Festival in the Philippines and emerged first place in the Chamber Choir category. The choir then took part in the Llangollen International Musical Eistedfodd 2015 in Wales and came back with two second place finishes and a spot in the Choir of the World Grand Finals.

In 2016, ONE took part in the Laurea Mundi Budapest and achieved Laurea Summa Cum Laude for the Mixed Choirs and Musica Sacra categories. In 2017, the choir achieved 2nd Prize at the prestigious 15th International Chamber Choir Competition Marktoberdorf as well as the Special Prize of the Carl-Orff-Stiftung Diessan am Ammersee, for the best interpretation of a choral work premiered at the competition.
More recently in 2018, ONE took part in the World Choir Games 2018, Tshwane, clinching Gold in the Musica Contemporanae and Pop Choir categories, as well as the Champion of the World Choir Games in the Mixed Chamber category.

ONE also works with overseas clinicians to explore new genres of choral music, and has collaborated with Maestro Werner Pfaff from Germany, Maestro Maris Sirmāis from Latvia and Maestro André van der Merwe from South Africa, delighting audiences with unique and exciting choral repertoire.  

With a vision to bring a new dimension to choral performances, ONE’s mission is to challenge conventional choral delivery to present a uniquely ONE experience. ONE hopes to engage, entertain and explore new themes and concepts with our audience in every performance.
